Yep! Meagan just landed a teaching position at an excellent Christian Academy in Winter Haven and will be starting on March 19.
Meagan--we're so proud of you! Those students of yours don't know what a blessing they're in for.

This week our church is once again hosting Room In The Inn, an outreach to the homeless. We host it twice every winter and provide food and lodging for a week at a time. I cooked the meal for the guests on Monday night and Steve spent the night as a monitor last night. (The monitors and guests all sleep on blow up mattresses in our Youth House.)
As Sarah and I were leaving the dinner on Monday night, I commented to her how thankful I was to be able to help those folks and how extra thankful they made me feel that I have a home to go to at the end of a long day. I never, ever want to take for granted
that I have a soft bed, a private bathroom, a comfortable recliner, plenty of clothes, a front porch, a back yard, and a kitchen with cupboards full of food.
In America, advertising is always nagging us to want more and more and more stuff but I really think that true happiness comes in just understanding that what we have is enough.
I'm grateful today for our Room In The Inn friends who reminded me without saying a word that I have enough. I have more than enough.
I am blessed.
(This picture I took recently reminds me that am blessed to live in such a lovely area!)
